About Me

I am a native of Washington, D.C.  I received my B.A. in Psychology from Howard University and my Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center in 2001. 


I've been practicing family law almost exclusively since 2002.  I've successfully tried or settled hundreds of cases across the state of Maryland and in the District of Columbia.

I pride myself on my ability to aggressively and diligently advocate and persuade, both in the courtroom and across the settlement table, but more importantly, on my attentiveness to the needs of my client and his or her individual circumstances. 


In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, reading, cooking, creating writing and spending time with my family and good friends.
